Crystallized ginger is made of ginger root that has been cooked until softened, and then lightly tossed in sugar. Crystallized ginger has a spicy-sweet flavor. Crystallized ginger as a food itself is spoken of in the Jewish Talmud, written about by Marco Polo, and even recommended in ancient literature as a remedy against the plague. Candied fruits such as crystalized ginger are commonly used in fruitcakes or pancakes.
